Parking requirements

The City of Chicago requires off-street car parking (on the property) for nearly all buildings and developments, as well as new businesses. We have distilled the most important parking requirements for residential developments. Parking requirements for non-residential developments are too complex to be simplified here at this time as they are based on the type and size of the business or development being proposed.

Parking requirements for developments with non-residential uses require a zoning assessment that's specific to the proposal. Contact us to order a customized zoning assessment.

Review the TOD Status below to determine if this location is eligible, based on its proximity to transit, to take advantage of a reduced off-street car parking requirement.

The Chicago Zoning Ordinance allows for off-site shared or cooperative parking for situations when off-street parking cannot be provided on the same property.
